Man to Man

Parents with courage
Parents with Courage is a seven session program that aims to provide parents with greater self understanding as well as enhanced skills for parenting. This program is for families with older primary and high school aged children and seeks to equip parents as well as provide support for those who are currently facing challenges. The sessions are highly practical with insight and strategies for intact, blended and single parent families.
One of the goals of Parents with Courage is to provide parents with a flexible approach to parenting. This will enable parents to apply strategies in a way that will best fit their family environment and the particular needs of their child.
Search for Intimacy
Sex is a part of life. Managed rightly, it is a profound blessing. Managed poorly, it is a source of pain and distress. People need more than rules about sex; they need a theology of sex that empowers them to live successfully in a sex-crazy environment. This course is directed at the needs of the young singles, the parents trying to raise them and “single again” people who are not so young.
Search for Life
People need to feel valued, accepted and have a sense of belonging. Without it individuals resort to inadequate and destructive patterns of behaviour to address feelings of low self-esteem, inadequacy and anxiety. This program identifies the cause of so many human tensions and introduces participants to the healing power of love, acceptance and peer support.
This program deals with pressing issues that face men today such as intimacy, sexuality and fatherhood.This is a program run by Allen Meyer through Inverell Care. Allen is one of the foremost speakers in the world in this area – he is real, funny and totally honest.
Woman to Woman
Every woman carries with her the strengths and weaknesses of her background. She carries the legacy of her past into all her relationships – family, business and church. This program will show participants how to free themselves from the past and focus on the future. It will provide strategies and skills needed to make positive and lasting changes in relationships
